Hi I'm Christine

I'm a missionary. I'm from California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California with my parents and four siblings. I go to college in Utah, and the weather is not anything like what I'm used to. As of June 2013, I have been a missionary sent to serve the people of Peru. I love serving the Lord! I also love spending time with my family, watching movies, and attempting to play sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has confirmed the truth of Christ's restored gospel. In the New Testament, It says in John 17:7 that "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine". To build our faith, we have to act. I have applied this scripture to my life and have seen the blessings of living Christ's commandments. One example is my faith in the Book of Mormon. I wanted to have a strong testimony of it. So I began to put time, thought, effort, and prayer into knowing if the Book of Mormon is true. We must work to build our faith, and that's what I did. My testimony of the Book of Mormon was strengthened through the Holy Ghost. The Book of Mormon has brought me peace, comfort, and closer to God. I know I am doing His will and pleasing Him by keeping His commandments and striving to do my best. I know that Christ's gospel has been restored to the Earth through Joseph Smith, a prophet of God. The Book of Mormon contains the truthfulness of the Gospel. The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith through the power God. Christ is our Savior, and only through His atonement can we repent and be free of sin. We can be free of shame and guilt. Through The Atonement, we can return to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I believe in the power of music, so I love to sing in the church choir or anything musical in the church. God's love can truly be felt this way. I strive to be like Christ by loving others, for we all need to see God's hands in our lives. I keep His commandments, including repenting when I make a mistake. I am strengthened when I pray to God and study the Bible and Book of Mormon.
